    Restore sounds absolutely busted with fetchlands, T1 fetchland, T2 land, Restore said fetchland, ramp, thin your deck, enjoy. I doubt they'd like to put that in Modern.

    So... a farseek that costs 1 life?

    Seems fine.

    I am hoping one of the decks this time around is Infect based...

    ...But then I have been hoping that for 3 years and counting without luck.

    Alternate Win decks, B/G mana infect, U/B mana mill, W/G mana life gain, R/W mana Boros attack combat damage stupidity...

    Containment Priest, Grip of Phyresis, Restore, From the Ashes, Thought Vessel, Homeward Path, Arcane Lighthouse, and Ash Barrens would all be interesting and nice to have reprints and/or foil versions available.

    Here's a fun thought, Skyshroud Elf.
    because Green decks should be able to play white and red cards as though they were green cards?

    If Druid of the Anima, Birds of Paradise, Utopia Tree, etc don't do what you want... its because you want to turn infinite green or colorless mana into red or white... and I don't see that as an improvement to modern. But then I don't play Modern competitively all that much, so what do I know.

    I wouldn't even feel that bad about no counterspell if memory lapse got to the printers.

    btw, does anyone know how do link the card image, but with an specific priting, and not just the latest (which is default)?

    you use a pipe... '|' character, and the expansion name
    Memory Lapse is what you get from [card]Memory Lapse|Homelands[/card].

    edit: You can even get fancy with it... M.Lapse Best Art! is what you get from [card=Memory Lapse|Homelands]M.Lapse Best Art![/card].

    I think cards that were printed into non-standard sets are a good guess for the reprint slots, to that end here is the list of over 400 likely reprints...

    Fancy Search!

    Teferi's Protection, Toxic Deluge, Ghoulcaller Gisa, Atraxa, Praetors' Voice, Flusterstorm, Bramble Sovereign, and Sanctum Prelate all seem very reasonable to reprint and desirable.

    The Confluence Cycle is another part of that list. And there are a lot of things that could fit into any Draft Strategy that MH might have.

    The image is broken, can we get text in the OP?

    +2: You May sacrifice another permanent. If you do, you gain 1 life and draw a card.
    -3: Destroy Target nonland permanent with converted mana cost 3 or less.
    -9: You get an emblem with “Whenever a creature you control seals combat damage to a player, that player loses the game.”

    I'll be incredibly amused if it turns out that Belzenlok isn't actually Liliana's last demon and was simply taking credit for it. Stretch that plot thread until it breaks, WotC!
    I would enjoy that... then make her search for the actual last demon and then eventually find him and kill him...

    It would have to be something like when she kills him the illusion falls apart and it turns out not to have been Belzenlok at all.

  • posted a message on Commander 2018 planeswalker face cards speculation
    All I want is commanders and support that make old mechanics more EDH friendly. A proper morph commander, a cycling one, a splice one. So much gold in magics history that could be insane with a little push in Commander products.
    This.

    There are lots of old abilities/tribes that could use a legend in their color(s). Orzhav Rebels for example.

    I doubt that we will get much progress on this front this year due to the planeswalker centric nature of this year. I think we will be getting something like the PW decks where the new cards tend to either be named after the walker or mimic things the walker does with art of the walker casting it.

    Likely reprints include Oaths, and core set signature cards as well as the new cards from PW decks.

    Liliana's Caress and similar jank for example

    And now I can't do any of that cause Timmy couldn't grasp it.
    Timmy is a name given to why people play the game, not how long or how well. I could name a dozen L3 Judges who are Timmies not to mention the number of L2 Judges who would self identify as Timmy (Including myself).

    Please stop calling Timmy stupid. More then 1/3rd of the magic players smarter then you are Timmy, if Timmy can’t handle it then you can’t either. Not even close.

    Oh get off your high horse. Timmy is a common reference to new players. Why? Because a lot of new players are attracted to big flashy spells and turning creatures sideways to win. You knew what I meant and are just choosing to be offended.
    And by the way, it's wizards who are saying that noobs are stupid by doing this, not me. I think new players can handle these interactions with no problems. It's been working fine this way for years.

    I disagree with Timmy being a common name for new players, and disagree that it is okay to use it as such even if that was a common misconception. I am not choosing to be offended, you are being offensive. And you are wrong besides. As far as I can tell WoTC didn’t do this to simplify the game, though it does make the game play more intuitively. They did it to open new design space. Namely the ability to print spells/effects that do damage to players but not planeswalkers, and to let effects like cometstorm hit a player and their planeswalker or two of their planeswalkers or a player and multiple planeswalkers.

    The change makes the game actually play the way people really play it, and it makes the game richer and deeper. It is a hugely positive change, but yes it has a large negative side effect with respect to the way existing cards interact, that actually makes it HARDER on new players, so the change is in the interest of you, the enfranchised player, at the cost of ‘the newb’.

  • posted a message on Damage instead of life loss for black?
    MaRo confirmed that they are moving away from life loss as an effect (it will continue to appear as a cost) in favor of direct damage in black.

    Kazarov, Sengrir Pureblood could be the black red uncommon legend, dropping the off color cycle and cleaning up a lot (only two uncommon legends for each mono color).

    I also believe the MMM cycle to be uncommon, freeing up some space at rare. Historically that type of cycle has been uncommon (Leatherback Baloth for example). I would use that space to downshift the legendary sorceries, freeing up two slots for mythic... Genesis wave and hydra were both rare... that feels a lot more reasonable.

    Overall very nice work though.
